Very handy tools to use while working on your research project:

Acronyms - Initials of Organizations - Geoff Brown of Between the Lakes Publishing sponsors this site that is very useful for determining the names of Organizations that are commonly known by just their Initials.

Birth Date Calculator - from Known Age and Date of Death.

Deed Platter - Draws Property Maps From Deed Description.

 -  Eastman's Encyclopedia of Genealogy - Dick Eastman hosts this on-line Encyclopedia that is dynamic and ever growing.  A very handy tool indeed!

Karen's Power Tools - Karen Kenworthy's Power Tools for Windows - Several very useful utilities for those that like to tweak their operating system. 

Reference Desk - Not necessarily genealogy, but information on just about everything.

Soundex Converter - An excellent tool to give you that crazy little Soundex number.

tucows - My favorite download site for ALL types of shareware, freeware, and commercial software downloads.  I have been using this site for many years and NEVER have downloaded any software that had viruses or trojans, (that I know of that is.)  The programs have all been tested and have good descriptions and reviews, and they have the famous tucows number of cows rating system of a one to five cow rating.  Search for anything you might need, or don't need but want to play with, and pick the server to download from.  I suggest making a new folder to download into because when you unzip or run the setup program it will keep all the junk in that folder and if you ever need to uninstall the program you can get rid of all traces of it by deleting the folder AFTER you uninstall. 

Wikipedia - A free on-line Encyclopedia of everything!
